Employees and clients of the victims of the ALPHV ransomware can search for their data on a searchable database that the thieves behind it have established.
ALPHV, also known as BlackCat and Noberus, first appeared as a ransomware family in November 2021 and was written in the Rust programming language. More than 100 businesses have been infiltrated by the ALPHV cybergang to date. ALPHV utilizes the ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) business model, with their associates breaching organizations and stealing sensitive information. It is likely associated with the cybercrime organization behind the Darkside/Blackmatter malware.
According to cybersecurity company Resecurity, the organization unveiled a searchable database including more than 100,000 documents and data seized from victims. Resecurity also observed that the ransomware gang has raised its demands, usually requiring victims to pay the ransom within a week.
